Former Black Stars and Kotoko coach, Malik Jabir has advised Ghanaian coaches not to work with the national teams without an appointment letter or a contract letter from the football governing body else they will be working as a prisoner.
Malik Jabir who coached Ghana in 2003 lamented over how the Ghanaian coaches are not being treated like the foreign managers concerning the national team coaching job.
The situation has forced the former Kotoko boss to advice the local coaches not to handle the national teams without an appointment letter or contract letter from the FA.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Original 91.9FM, the veteran tactician lamented, “We shouldn’t be talking about this but the officials who are in charge from the GFA. They are in charge of the coaches, they select the players for the work to be done but before they they call you they will serve you a letter and seek permission from your club but when the club releases you for the job you don’t need anybody again, nobody will talk about welfare, nothing. They will leave you with the team but it is wrong. Very wrong. If we don’t accept it too you the journalists will hit at our backs.”
“Is not fair, If you don’t get your contract letter or appointment letter don’t work because you will be working like a prisoner.”
“You will be working like a prisoner” – He reiterated.
